SIX is now the world’s primary network for social innovation and a reputable source for research, action and intelligence.
We work with cities, companies, NGOs, national governments, and international bodies such as the European Commission to improve the methods with which our societies find better solutions to challenges such as climate change, inequality and healthcare.
We foster genuine, active connections between the people building innovative solutions, from the grassroots to the policymaking level through our events which are carefully curated, whether it’s a short global workshops using TelePresence technology, or a 3 day experience in a city of one of our member organisations.
We promote and facilitate learning across sectors, fields and countries and our website is known as a great resource of thinking and case studies of social innovation around the world.
By connecting innovators, and developing, curating and disseminating ideas and practical examples of social innovation, SIX enables its global community to learn from each other, building the capacities of our members to become better innovators.
We, the members of SIX,
value social impact (rather than ideas)celebrate solutions (more than heroes)engage honestly (more than just inform)inspire through action (not just words)connect as peers (not in a hierarchy)committed to openness (and welcome the unexpected)
SIX is a global community of people and organisations involved in social innovation
